Harry Reid, Senate Democrats & Republicans Kill Cruz's Attempt To Defund Obamacare

Harry Reid, Senate Democrats & Republicans Kill Cruz’s Attempt To Defund Obamacare

After Ted Cruz’s marathon “filibuster” the Senate rejected him, Senator Lee, Senator Paul and others this afternoon when they killed the effort to defund Obamacare. The 79-19 vote was crushing defeat for the young tea-party backed Senate coalition. 

Today the Senate voted on cloture, which was the last effort to kill Obamacare by defunding it. The House previously passed the continuing resolution, which would keep government funded, but would simultaneously defund Obamacare.

When the the tea party republicans looked to their republican colleagues in the Senate for support today none was to be found.

The bill will now be returned to the House where Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) may block it. This could lead to a government shut down.

    When people start to take responsibility for their own actions and stop relying on the force of government, there will be real change inside the arbitrary lines drawn on a map called USA.
